Friday 29th April
Last group picture of the trip…probably!!
Proof that some people might have hit the fatigue ‘wall’ -haven’t told them about the climb to the Sacré Cœur yet!!
One of the highest points in all of Paris
A beautiful morning at one of the most beautiful places in Paris – La Sacré Cœur
Lots of VERY tired faces this morning!!
The mass pack up begins – parents please don’t expect bags to be as neatly packed as they were on the outward journey!
Thursday 28th April
The pupils asked for a disco for the final night. So far it is your classic kids disco, nobody dancing, girls in groups chatting, boys running around playing ‘it’!
Plenty of Beliebers on the dance floor!
Birthday cakes all done! Happy Birthday !
Team Staff Selfie!
The classic pic!!
Classic comments – at Pirates of the Caribbean ride:
Pupil: ‘You won’t get me on a boat’
Mr Spong: Other than the ferry and the one on the River Seine then!!
It is the day that EVERYONE on the trip has been looking forward to!! EuroDisney here we come!!
And now the genius of the yellow hoodie pays for itself!!
Wednesday 27th April
Prize to who can guess where we are today!
Pupil: Is that the London Eye? Mr Spong: Think about where we are Pupil: Oh…it’s the Great Wheel of China!
Boat trip down the River Seine
When in Paris by the Eiffel Tower what else do you do but the Cancan!
Walking up the
@LaTourEiffel – sir not more steps!!
au deuxième étage
Walking up to the 2nd floor of the Eiffel Tower is tiring!!
Not quite as yellow as it was on Sunday!!
Getting the introduction from Malik the animateur in our new accommodation.
I conservatively estimate that today’s visits to
@LaTourEiffel and the boat trip on the Seine have generated 3,476 selfies!
Although this will be a drop in the ocean compared to Euro Disney tomorrow!!
Tuesday 26th April
Some of our pupils are so refined!!
Looking out over Omaha Beach at the American Cemetery.
As close to a Sadleir as we could find in the British Cemetary.
Crêpes in the sunshine, how very french!!
Monday 25th April
“This french orange juice tastes like the orange juice at home”
Pupil: “Look at those horses”
Me: “They’re cows”
Pupil: “Same thing”
